Bibi to Meet Obama in July

I've Been Thinking:
This meet will be a follow up to the meeting that was cancelled several weeks when the "humanitarian aid" flotilla attempted to break the Israeli blockade and enter Gaza.
The White House was so grateful that the earlier meeting with Israel was cancelled that Obama gave Netanyahu an open invitation to come back at any time. At that particular time, it would have been a very difficult spin for Obama meeting with the Israeli prime minister.
Israel needs to get the United States back on their page. It helps that the White House is confused about the Palestinians. The facts on the ground in the Palestinian Authority do not correspond with the image the White House is projecting. That is a problem Netanyahu can use to Israel's advantage.
